    Isolated Yeast (Tree House): How to Identify and Characterize?

    Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to blend the yeast for a 3 gallon batch? Would more yeast be better? I was thinking of trying a 3 gallon batch with 92.0% 2-Row, 5.0% Carafoam, 2.5% Caramunich II. Just not sure the best way to go about blending the yeast. Thanks!

    Keg Help - Not Sure What's Happening

    Not sure what to do I released all the pressure in the keg this morning and set it at 10psi. I am at work right now so it will be sitting like that for probably another 8 hours. Will this just increase the problem? I guess I should have shut the gas off and just let it rest. Also, I cam...

    Keg Help - Not Sure What's Happening

    So here is my situation I racked a pale ale into my keg on Sunday and set it to 40psi and let it sit for 24, then I lowered it to 20psi and let it sit for another 24 hours. Last night I lowered it to 10psi to try it and all I got was foam. I opened the keg, which I’m sure ill get blasted for...

    Mini-fridge for one corny and one 1/6 barrel

    I know you said you wanted to be < 200 but if you really want one that will for sure fit a ball lock and 1/6 keg, go with the Danby DAR044A5BSLDD. I got mine off amazon $229 but looks like the price might be down to $202. Only modification I had to do was cut the shelf holder off the door. I...

    2 Week Primary & Then Keg

    One other question, I really want to hit the correct color this time. My other homebrew's have all turned out darker then expected. I have the ability to boil 3.5 gallons right now, I know doing a full boil will help which I plan to switch to later. If I add half of the extract at 60min and...

    2 Week Primary & Then Keg

    Awesome, really appreciate the feedback. As I said I'm relatively new to home brewing and have always thought longer = better but recently I read a few threads and articles saying ales and ipa's are best fresh and two weeks is fine. Thanks again for the responses.

    2 Week Primary & Then Keg

    Hello All, To make a long story short I have a party coming up on 11/25 and want to have a fresh brew ready to go. Life got in the way and I am a little short on time. The style I am thinking of brewing is a pale ale (sierra nevada clone) type. My plan is to brew on Friday 11/6 and let...
